“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing” II Timothy 4: 7-8

Heavenly Father, we understand that your will must be done. We refuse to be ungrateful and selfish for all the joy that Darrell brought into our lives. As a family, we are thankful for the happiness we’ve known and forever grateful for Darrell’s 19 years on earth. The life of Darrell Lee King began in Brunswick, Georgia , on November 16,2002, when God gave Richard Knowles and Lea King this unique bundle of joy. God created an amazing son, grandson, brother, nephew, and friend, who left a memorable impression on each life that he touched. God’s plans are not always our plans. When your angels came for him on November 26, 2021, at Aiken Regional Medical Center, Aiken, South Carolina, it was much sooner than we planned, but we’ll brave the grief that comes and try to understand.

Darrell Lee King was educated in the public Schools of Glynn County, Georgia. After relocating to South Carolina, he attended an alternative program and received a GED because he realized the importance of education. Darrell enjoyed playing basketball, 2 K video games, and creating his own music and lyrics. He was employed with Cookouts as a cook.

He leaves to cherish his memories: his parents, Reverend Richard Knowles of Brunswick, GA and Lea King of Aiken, South Carolina; brothers, Richard Anderson, Jr., Zion Anderson, Self Anderson, Caleb Mixon, Caleeb Mixson, and Christopher Mixon all of Aiken, SC, X’zhavivus  and RhaShawn Knowles of Brunswick, GA; sister, Icis Anderson of Aiken, SC; Grandparents, Annette Steele, Deloris (Ricardo)Harrisonand Bobby Hardy all of Brunswick, Georgia; uncles, Remer Pierce, Jr., and RaShawn Pierce both of Brunswick, Georgia and ReMone Pierce of Atlanta, Georgia; aunts, Renee Steele and Marrion Steele both of Brunswick, Georgia; a host of great aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends.

Due to the current state of (COVID-19) pandemic and in order to promote social distancing, anyone entering the funeral home for viewing; as well as attending all graveside services must wear a mask. We will also limit the number of persons allowed to enter the funeral home at any given period during the viewing process.  We ask that you leave the premise upon exiting the building. The family is most appreciative to each of you for all acts of kindness shown to them during this difficult time in their lives.
